Vikings Agree To Terms With Kennedy

Posted by Mike Wobschall on March 17, 2010 – 2:49 pm

Several reports last week indicated that DT Jimmy Kennedy would return to the Vikings, even after a free agent visit with the Buffalo Bills. Today, the Vikings have announced that the 7-year veteran and the club have indeed agreed to terms.

Kennedy will enter his 3rd season as a Viking in 2010 after originally joining the team in December of 2008. He enjoyed one of his most productive seasons in 2009, matching his career-best 3.0 sacks in the regular season and adding another sack during the playoffs. Kennedy made 1 start in 2009, filling in for Pat Williams at Chicago and tallying 9 tackles that night.

The former Penn State standout wa the #12 selection in the 2003 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams and has played for St. Louis, Chicago and Jacksonville, along with the Vikings, during his career. He has played in 77 career games with 31 starts and has posted 10.0 career sacks.

    Thanks for the confirmation, he’ll be a bigger asset for us this than he was last with Pat in his final year. He’ll also end up being a great replacement for Pat come 2011. Let’s keep on shoring up those crucial secondary roles, back up players are going to make a load of difference in our run to the big dance this year.

    Another positive sign. I don’t have a vibe one way or another on the Williams’s trial, but he may have to make some starts early next season. Smart move Vikes.
